Download US only apps from App StoreIf you are staying outside of US and have an iPad, you might have come across a few free apps which are meant to be downloaded only within the United States. You will not find any way to download it outside of the United States. There are many such paid apps as well. But the fact that those apps are really awesome tempts you more to get them on your iPad. If you are in such a situation, here is an easy way to get those free US-only apps on your iPad, even if you are staying out of the US.

To begin with, you’ll need a new email ID, or any existing email ID which you are not using with Apple services as an Apple ID. If you dont have any such email ID, you can try and create one with free services such as GMail or Yahoo! We’ll call this your secondary email ID in the rest of this post. Once you have this ready, proceed to the next step.

First, open App Store on your iPad, then make sure you are at the featured section. Then, scroll down the page, you will see an option to log out of the App Store. Hit that button and log out. You now dont have any account which is associated with the App Store. Now search a free app in the App Store which is downloadable only in the US. Click on download in the app page. The App Store will now ask you to sign in with your Apple ID. Now tap on the create new ID button and enter your secondary email ID. The App Store will ask you to complete the sign up process. Do it. During this process, when the App Store asks you to select your country, select United States even though you are not living in the US.

Then, when the process asks you to enter your credit card details, select none. You’ll get a confirmation mail in your secondary email ID inbox. Click on that and verify your email ID. Now you are good to go. You can download any free app which is restricted to be downloaded only in the US.
